    Hero of Sparta Review

    Hero of Sparta

    On a mobile phone platform like the iPhone, Hero of Sparta stands out as something quite impressive, but simply porting a game like this to the PSP as a Mini isn't good enough. PSP Minis are undoubtedly a good thing and can only help give the PSP a... more

    James Cameron's Avatar The Game Review

    James Cameron's Avatar The Game

    In this pretty but basic third-person action game, in which you play a blue-skinned Na'vi hell bent on ridding the planet of Pandora of unwelcome Newcomers, waggling is both woeful and frustrating. To 3D, or not to 3D? That was James Cameron's question. Ubisoft Montreal's... more

    SHOOTER! The Official Movie Game Review

    SHOOTER! The Official Movie Game

    There are some interesting mechanics in Shooter and the potential is clear, but it can't help but be dragged into the realms of bad film tie-ins. It's no secret that in gaming terms a film tie-in generally represents a... more

    Metal Gear Solid Touch Review

    Metal Gear Solid Touch

    It’s a shame there are no stealth elements, but what is on offer is a thoroughly enjoyable on-rails shooter that utilises the iPhone's touch screen to full effect. When Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots was released on the PS3 last... more

    Car Jack Streets Review

    Car Jack Streets

    If you can put your faith in Tag sorting out the relatively easy to resolve control issues through updates then Car Jack Streets is definitely worth a look. It's hard to look at screenshots of Car Jack Streets (CJS) and not draw... more

    Iron Sight Review

    Iron Sight

    With a real deficit of 3D strategy games available from the App Store Iron Sight is bound to attract some fans. You only have to look at the media's incessant grooming to realise it's only... more

    Galaxy on Fire Review

    Galaxy on Fire

    If you can forgive its overly ambitious first segment then you’ll find yourself graced with a clever little shooter that inspires a real sense of ‘play it until you can afford it’ gameplay. There is something tremendously compelling about saving up for virtual... more

    Terminator Salvation Review

    Terminator Salvation

    Terminator Salvation is still very much worth the attention of anyone looking for a solid third-person shooter. The beginning of Terminator 2 Judgment Day makes us think 'wow this would... more

    Minigore Review

    Minigore

    Minigore's presentation is top class and the dual-stick controls work well, but we can't see the fun lasting for more than a few weeks and the odd cheap death might annoy high score junkies. Minigore is the latest "twin stick" shooter to grace the iPhone. Developer... more
